This is currently on it's way back to UK from Portugal.
I bought it with the intention of converting to RHD but have decided to offer up for sale 1st.
It's quite an unusual model in that it has Tailgate, Hinged Side Door and original Rear Bench Seat. The Rear Side Glasses are also on Regulators and can be wound up & down. Front Bumper/Nudge Bar is probably fabricated but doesn't look out of place.
It does gave an Inspeção Tecnica (Portuguese MOT) till May 2019.
All I can say is, their test must be a lot more relaxed than Vosa's!
Underneath is solid enough. Front panel has a bit of corrosion at bottom and there are a few dents and some surface rust on bodywork. There are a couple of small holes in the outer sills. The front seats have loads of movement in the runners. Some of the Light Lenses have gone brittle with the heat, dash is a bit tatty also.
There is Play in the Steering. It has an early 2.5Di & 4 Speed but it sounds like a bag of nails. I drove it 600 miles from South Portugal to Santander and now think I need spinal realignment, fillings put back in teeth and 2 hearing aids!
Maybe I'm being a bit harsh, it has been 20 years since I drove a MK2. Perhaps they were always like that and I've just gone soft with all the modern crap.
My plan was to drop in a Banana & 5 speed, convert to RHD and then get the paint touched up.
I'll probably still do that in the new year but if it sells first, I won't be heart broken.
Will be in Swindon in about a week and should have the Nova also by that time.
I would strongly recommend viewings, as it does look a lot better in the pictures(more to follow).
£3000
